    1. There are more advantages to studying in a single-sex school than in a coed school.
    2. There are more advantages in studying in a single-sex school than in a coed school.
    3. There are more advantages of studying in a single-sex school than in a coed school.

    Thanks a lot.

    I'd choose 'of'. We say, "What is the advantage of that?" 'In' is acceptable. I might even say 'from' in that sentence.

    I'd accept the lot, but I'd probably say There are more advantages to studying in a single-sex school than a coed school.
